This true story chronicles mountain climber Aron Ralson, who survived a tragic ordeal and fought through incredible odds to save his own life after a horrendous accident. Aron is out in the wilderness, hikin a mountain and enjoying nature, when a boulder crashes into him, crushing his arm and trapping him in the isolated canyon. Over the course of five days, Aron analyzes his life, survives the elements and decides to whatever it will take to make it out of the wild alive. To escape, Aron must scale a 65 foot wall and attempt an eight mile walk, but first, he must deal with the large boulder keeping him there. What Aron does to set himself free will have you reeling for the rest of the night.

That all changes when during another botched scheme, Metro Man is finally defeated. The news of this colossal defeat spurs the action of a new, far more evil villain to make his move on Metro City, the home of Megamind and Metro Man. With their once shining hero out of the picture, Metro City has only one person to turn to: the unlikely new protector of their lives, Megamind. Can Megamind break his old habits and turn into the hero the city needs?
